  Google News - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Google News is an automated news aggregator provided by Google Inc. The Google News website was introduced as a beta release in April 2002.
Google News infringed on its copyright because "Google includes AFP’s photos, stories and news headlines on Google News without permission from Agence France Presse."[1] [2] It was also alleged that Google ignored a cease and desist order, though Google counters that it has opt-out procedures which AFP could have followed but did not.
Google News provides searching, and the choice of sorting the results by date and time of publishing (not to be confused with date and time of the news' happening) or grouping them (and also grouping without searching).

Google spokeswoman Sonya Boralv said this isn't the first time the company has paid media for content, noting that the search engine already shares some of its revenue with broadcasters and book publishers to sell some of their copyrighted material on the site.
Google might be using the AP agreement as a testing ground to share some of its ad revenue with organizations that produce content just as it does with websites that publish the information, said Jonathan Zittrain, professor of Internet governance and regulation at Oxford University.
Google, a publicly owned company, reported $6.1 billion in revenue last year and is on a pace to exceed $9 billion this year.

However, a News sitemap is a great tool to give you greater control over how your content appears in Google News and to alert you to any errors we might encounter when we try to crawl your site.
Previously, some of this content could be harder to find on Google News, and as a result of this change, you'll have easier access to more of this content, and publishers will likely receive more traffic to their original content.
We're excited about the possibilities of this new feature and we hope you are too, so if you've been covered in a news article please send us your comments and we'll work with you to post it on Google News.

GOOGLE has plans that will dramatically improve the results of internet news searches, by ranking them according to quality rather than simply by their date and relevance to search terms.
Google's database will also keep track of the number of staff a news source employs, the volume of internet traffic to its website and the number of countries accessing the site.
Google will take all these parameters, weight them according to formulae it is constructing, and distil them down to create a single value.

 OJR article: Google News Creator Watches Portal Quiet Critics With 'Best News' Webby
The beta tag still hangs on Google News, but in the year since it launched, the computer-generated news portal has achieved alpha status for millions of users looking for the latest news.
It's not the only news search engine, but it is a popular favorite: Google News had 2.24 million unique visitors in August, making it the 17th most popular general news site, according to comScore's Media Metrix.
Sometimes I think that with Google Search we're so used to seeing things ranked in the order of their potential value to us, that it's a little jarring when Google News doesn't seem to do the same thing.

 Official Google Blog: And now, News
By presenting news "clusters" (related articles in a group), we thought it would encourage readers to get a broader perspective by digging deeper into the news -- reading ten articles instead of one, perhaps -- and then gain a better understanding of the issues, which could ultimately benefit society.
For example, readers told us they loved the news clusters but they didn't want press releases on the home page (although they are still useful to have in the search results).
Google News has matured a great deal, and we're proud to see it graduate from its beta status.

 Google stands firm behind News search site | InfoWorld | News | 2007-05-23 | By Juan Carlos Perez, IDG News Service
One of Google's most popular, older, and controversial services, Google News, is the article aggregation and search site that media companies love to hate because it has become a major source of Web traffic and frustrations for many of them.
All along, Google has defended News saying that it is protected by the fair use principle -- because it only reproduces headlines, text snippets, and thumbnail images -- and that it provides great benefit to media Web sites by sending them readers.
Google News should reward original journalism, whether it's from the AP or a local newspaper.

Now, Google is actually going to put news results ranked within the regular search results, combining the two in a more convenient way.
Google’s new plan involves mixing those news results within the regular web results, instead of putting them in a seperate search engine or in a little box.
The criteria for evaluating sources for Google News includes: regular updates to the posted content; the source is an organization and not an individual; the content does not include hate speech or pornography; and the source conducts editorial reviews of the content, [Google spokeswoman Sonya] Boralv said.

Google has agreed to pay the Associated Press for use of its news stories and pictures, according to a statement released by the two companies on Wednesday.
The deal settles a dispute between Google and the AP and has implications for a lawsuit Google is facing from the Paris-based Agence France Presse news agency, which sued the search powerhouse last year for allegedly infringing its copyrights on Google News.
Because Google News is an aggregator, the company has argued, Google is not obliged to reimburse news outlets for linking to their content.
